Soon, OnLive may not be your online cloud computing option. Gaikai, brain child of Shiny Entertainment co-founder Dave Perry, was pitched to the global consumer market with an image that has many eager to get their hands on the service. Contained within a single uploaded image was the country-sized MMO World of Warcraft being successfully streamed through normal WiFi on an Apple iPad. Perry is looking to market Gaikai directly to publishers, and make “games accessible anywhere.”

“This is World of Warcraft streamed from a Gaikai server over regular Wifi,.” said Perry in his blog post. “We’re really interested to see what works well with streaming and will be trying just about every genre of game, on every device possible as we explore server-side computing.”
